 I found it struggling to the surface whilst raking leaves. When I first found it it was a vivid cobalt blue. It's leggy leaves are in the photo too.

    Scilla siberica, I think. It's a bulb.

    Scilla siberica aka Siberian squill - a bulb, naturalises beautifully in deciduous woodland - I saw a woodland absolutely carpeted with it down in Suffolk about a fortnight ago - a picture image

    I'm not sure, but it looks a bit like blue laurentia, a member of the campanula family. Or there is one called Beths blue  star.

    Hi Lily  image- pretty sure it's not laurentia as the leaves are a classic bulb-type leaf and laurentia isn't a bulb and has lobed leaves.

    I agree with Dove, it is a scilla, I have lots in my garden.  They self seed very easily.
